Check the Motor,the lid switch and the connections. If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. The motor coupler may be broken. A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. The clutch may be worn.The drive motor may be defective. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other.

The transmission may not be shifting properly. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. You can get required parts fromwww.repairclinic.com
get to the lid switch by removing the front first then removing the top. The lid switch has a quick connect. Unplug that and check for continuity or simply by pass it at that point to see if that washer wakes up.Set the meter on ohms and see if you have continuity between the 2 pins of your lid switch assembly.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

The needle doesn't go up & down. Any suggestions? Thank you


Does the handwheel turn eazy or is it stiff. If it is stiff you need to take the top and bottom off and lubricate all moving parts. may take a bit of turning the handwheel and lubicating(it may tire you out). If the handwheel is not stiff I would check to see iff the motor is spining at all. If motor is not spining may be a bad footcontrol. If it is spining try cleaning the belt pullys and tighting the belt.
hope this helps
